Needleplay Workshops by Wintersong
Needle Play 101
If you go in to just about any dungeon at any major event you are likely to see people playing with needles. Needle play can be intimidating as hell if you are not familiar with it; there are all sorts of safety precautions that you need to take to do it safely, there’s blood, and of course needles, which can be scary in their own right. In this 101 style class you’ll learn how to prepare, play, and clean up safely. We’ll go over the basics of placing and removing needles, and of course, we’ll talk about how you can integrate this kind of play into your own erotic world.
Hands on Needleplay
Most needle play classes talk a lot about basic versus advanced needle play, about artistic placement, ribbons and corsets, but really what we’re here to do put sharp metal in tender flesh? So we’ learn some simple and easy ways to use needles to have a good time. We’ll start with what you need to know about safety, set up, proper tools, and cleanup afterward, then get to the hands on learning. Bring the partner/victim of your choosing (or be willing to be partnered randomly) and get ready to get your gloves on!
Intro to Cock and Ball Needle Play
Penises and needles, both are most fun when being stuck into someone. But what about bringing them together? Since we can’t stick penises into needles, let’s get together and learn about sticking needles into penises. We’ll talk about specific techniques for cock and ball (or more specifically, scrotum) needle play from setup to cleanup, and of course, what to do in between. Familiarity with safety and techniques of needle play are helpful, but not required.
Leave the beads and feathers at home, this advanced needleplay class will focus specifically on techniques for using needles as a tool for erotic pain. We’ll cover various ways to hurt your bottom through needle placement, layout, impact play, manipulation and of course, removal. Specific safety precautions, aftercare needs, materials, and other considerations will also be discussed.
Needle Predicament Bondage
This intermediate to advanced class uses needles as anchors for creating deliciously devious predicaments for your bottom. Not just a replacement for ties, we’ll look at the specific advantages and unique effects you can get using needles in these types of scenes. Using body mechanics to create self-contained predicaments, as well as objects and outside points will be addressed, along with different forms of needle placements for different objectives. Come prepared to think “outside the box” and more than a little devilishly.
Skin Stapling for Pain and Pleasure
The skin stapler is a remarkable versatile and self contained tool for play. You can use it to achieve everything from lovely patterns, to delicious pain, to bondage and chastity. This class will cover the variety of uses for this fabulous tool from the basic to the more advanced.
Needles & Energy: Using the Silver Portal
There are many ways we manipulate and interact with our own energy bodies and those of other people. In this class we’ll be looking at a variety of ways to adapt techniques from the play-piercing world to enhance and guide our energetic explorations, erotic and otherwise. Some of the techniques I will be covering include: needles as portals for moving energy in and out of the body, energetic enhancements for erotic play-piercing, forming energetic connections, aiding in energy healing, and influencing arousal and sexual response though directing the flow of energy. Some familiarity with play-piercing and/or energy work is helpful but not required.
The Tiniest Athame: Using Needles for Energy Work and Magic
Piercing the skin can be an intimate and powerful experience, and can lead to all sorts of reactions in both the person piercing and being pierced. But what about using the needle itself as a tool to direct energy to a purpose? In this class we will explore ways to use needle play techniques to move energy into and out of the body or aura, perform cleansing, healing, and other forms of spell work that lend themselves well to this atypical tool. Familiarity with either needle play or energy work/magic would be helpful.
